In certain extreme operating environments such as a paper mill or in food processing where regular steam cleaning occurs, the humidity level far exceeds normal industrial environments. In these situations, lubricants and other fluids stored in tanks and reservoirs need the protection of a desiccant breather even more. However, small temperature variations draw in the humid air and unnecessarily reduce the life of the breather. The Watchdog EX series breathers for extreme humidity applications incorporate two check valves, one to control airflow into the protected reservoir and one to control airflow out. This prolongs the life of the desiccant by allowing the air to flow through the breather only when needed to protect the integrity of the tank. Unlike a membrane system, which does not allow internally generated gases and contaminants to exit the system, the Watchdog EX breather offers all of the advantages of breathing air in and out of the tank while removing water vapor and solid particles before they contaminate the fluid. Color indicating - when maximum adsorption is reached the silica gel turns from gold to dark green, indicating replacement is needed. The silica gel used is chemically inert, non-corrosive, and does not contain cobalt chloride, a heavy metal. The color changing dye used is environmentally safe and meets all health and safety requirements. Durable construction - watchdog breathers are manufactured from rugged ABS plastic and impact modified acrylic. Reusable top cap - allows the economic replacement of the desiccant cartridge. Airflow rate 35 CFM. Measures 5" diameter by 9-55/64" height.
